The Anasazi people are referred to as the ancient Pueblo people. They lived in the “Four Corners” region of the United States. The Anasazi depended on trade and developed a precise solar calendar due its importance in farming.
What were the largest Anasazi communities?
In northern New Mexico and Chaco Canyon, the Anasazi built towns with multi-story houses, well-organized defenses, and excellent roads.
On the Colorado plateau the Anasazi build cities on the tops of cliffs. Possibly due to drought around 1100 A.D., the Anasazi moved their homes to the sites below the Colorado plateau.
What happened to the Anasazi?
The Anasazi abruptly deserted their cities in the 14th century. Although archaeologists are not completely sure why, they assume it was due to drought or exhaustion of natural resources.
Adobe is a hard brick made up of a mixture of mud and straw that was baked in the sun. The adobes were multi-level dwellings that had thick walls which absorbed the sun’s heat and kept the buildings cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
